Jolly Christmas is Back!!

Hey & Happy Weekend!

I do hope your weekend has got off to a better start than mine!

I think I tired myself out last night painting The Beans room while they slept over at their Grandparents and then when that was done we had 2 BIG boy single beds to assemble. I think we finished up at about 11:30 pm !!

Then today I feel like I have spent the day doing errands, only to find frustrating obstacles everywhere I went. To top the day off I have just discovered a leak from our en-suite toilet and it dripping through the ceiling into the playroom. This calls for some R&R and GIN!

On a positive note, The Beans LOVE their new BIG boy beds and are tucked up fast asleep. My FIL has been round and hopefully fixed the leak too – fingers crossed all stays well overnight!

ANYWAY… enough of all my woes! I am SUPER excited that Jolly Christmas is now back in stock – YAY! He was the only sell out from the October Release and now he is back I am itching to share more using him, like I have on the card…

On Thursday I took a trip out to our local Crafters Companion store with a friend and I was super happy to finally get my hands on some Simply White Gloss Nuvo Drops :) plus a few other colours! I’d seen Yana Smakula’s card HERE using them as a snowy background and had to give it a go.

I’ve used Prismacolor Pencils to colour my Jolly Santa in and added Stampin’ Up! Glitter to the bobble & brim of his hat, along with the cuffs of his coat. The sentiment is a favourite of mine from Simply Said Christmas. I used the current Freshly Made Sketches layout for my card seen HERE and below.

I had a lovely crafternoon on Thursday making cards to share with all the restocks that arrived in the studio this week. Lots of popular clear stamps are back in store including, Background Builders: Seeing Stars, Birthday Sentiments, I LOVE Coffee, Kindness Blooms and So Much. I will be sharing my cards over the coming days :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Re-Introducing… Background Builders: Christmas AND Jolly Christmas

Hey!

Welcome to the first day of the October 2018 Release product introductions.
This is the fun part, you now get to see all the sneak peeks in action. The Design Team have worked their socks off and created an abundance of inspiration to share with you over the coming days :)
Today we are re-introducing Background Builders: Christmas AND Jolly Christmas clear stamp sets. These two clear stamp sets were first introduced WAY back in October 2013 HERE and HERE. You can also find more ‘old’ inspiration using the clear stamps HERE and HERE on Pinterest.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE at the start of the hop. I have shared a couple of new cards there using these 2 re-released clear stamp sets.

I’ve made a couple more cards to hopefully inspire you…

Firstly I wanted to pair the snowflake builder stamp with the Designer Dies Snowflake Trio. I tried my hand at some partial die cutting too!

After stamping the snowflake background I added tiny drops of Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard to all the snowflake centres for a little bit of subtle sparkle. The sentiment is a new one from another clear stamp set we will be introducing later this week. The pearls are from Little Things By Lucy’s Crystal Collection – Sweet Pea.

I was having so much fun getting reacquainted with Background Builders: Christmas, that I used it for my second card to share with you today too!

Even though I absolutely LOVE snowflakes, I think the 2 step stamp holly in this set trumps the snowflakes! It is beautifully festive and pairs with other Uniko clear stamps, such as this sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #4.

After a busy few weeks I was feeling a little tired and ‘meh’ so I treated myself to some more Altenew inks and this little ‘Lil Inker Bow Die. It is too darn cute and pairing it with some old Papertrey Ink polka dot paper was the perfect finish to this clean and simple card.

As usual my AWESOME Design Team have created projects to share with you all too. Be sure to hop along, commenting along the way. You never know, I might just pick some random comments to WIN some prizes this release 😉

I hope you enjoyed the hop & will come back tomorrow for the next product introductions!
